In brief: Not to that extent

But the initial phase can be associated with mood swings and anxiety.
With treatment and stability of thyroxine levels, you should expect gradual improvement (can take up to several months).

In brief: Very unlikely

Occasionally, hashimoto's can be associated with hyperthyroidism, called graves' disease, this can be associated with the typical symptoms of hyperthyroidism and can include anxiety and panic.
This is particularly true in those with chronic stress and/or post traumatic stress where the adrenal glands may not be able to keep up with the combination of stress and hyperthyroidism.
